Smartmatic: Don’t expect total efficiency

Posted by akosistella on April 13, 2010


MANILA, Philippines—If a machine conks out, it doesn’t mean there’s a glitch.


Not all of the counting machines will work perfectly on Election Day, but voters need not worry because officials are prepared to handle the hiccups, according to Smartmatic-TIM Corp. Asia Pacific president Cesar Flores.

At a news conference Monday, Flores angrily denounced newspaper headlines highlighting the cold and damp weather in Hong Kong that momentarily decommissioned two precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines on the second day of the month-long overseas absentee voting.

He said people’s expectations in the conduct of the country’s first nationwide automated elections on May 10 should be tempered.
